Forecast: £120.34m
Variance: 5.27%
Variance text: The variance between the two figures is due mainly to GPNGA movements. The project spend slipped from 11-12 to 12-13 – the original EBC only had £5m for this project – the forecast shown in the GMPP was £20m. Re-evaluation of the spend profile was carried out for the budget request and this accounts for the rest of the delta.
